Witnesses told police that the woman was sitting a bench near the corner when her attacker stormed up and started arguing with her. As the two fought, the man pulled out a blade and knifed her in the neck before speeding off on a scooter.

PIX 11 reports that the woman was rushed to NYC Health & Hospitals/Harlem, where she was pronounced dead, police said. The NYPD is not releasing the victim’s identity until her family has been notified.
